Advantech extends its protocol gateway product line with the introduction of the EKI-1221IEIMB and EKI-1221PNMB Protocol Gateway Series for protocol conversion. The protocol gateway devices support protocol conversion from Modbus TCP to EtherNet/IP, and Modbus TCP to PROFINET. They enable seamless connection between different devices with different protocols, and also provide a high level of device management efficiency.

EKI-1221IEIMB and EKI-1221PNMB are designed for protocol extensibility and seamless integration with existing network devices. They offer a viable solution for efficiently converting data from legacy devices and reduce the possibility of expensive device purchase or software programming errors. With the addition of these protocol gateway devices into existing network infrastructures, customers can build a seamless data path between otherwise incompatible network devices and extend their useful life without a major upgrade.

The implementation of Advantech’s EKI-1221IEIMB/PNMB Protocol Gateway Series is simple and fast. They are easy to set up and configure, and they are compatible with Siemens and Rockwell HMI/PLCs. They have a built-in diagnostic tool that can connect data and monitor the status of connected devices in real time. This allows operators to utilise collected data, analyse it and find suitable solutions to prevent potential problems. Instrument data from each machine/device can be sent via EtherNet/IP or PROFINET PLC protocol conversion performed by an Advantech Protocol Gateway for further analysis in order to monitor the condition of in-service equipment.

Their fast deployment not only facilitates a productive workflow, but also enables easy machine automation management and maintenance on the shop floor. This is a crucial function for predictive maintenance management.
